A - Philip K. Dick
B - Arthur C. Clarke
C - Ray Bradbury
D - Aldous Huxley

Liz doesn't know off the top of her head but she has a feeling. She thinks she can narrow it down to two but she's going to ask the audience first.

A - 4%
B - 47%
C - 40%

$7000: Not counting the spaces between them, how many total stripes appear on a typical pair of Adidas' iconic Superstar sneakers?
A - 8
B - 12
C - 16
D - 20

Liz says that Adidas shoes have 3 stripes, and with two shoes, that would be 6, but there are stripes on both sides of each shoe.

$10,000: Aiding in the absorption and digestion of fats, the yellow or greenish fluid known as bile is initially produced by what body part?
A - kidneys
B - liver
C - appendix
D - pancreas

Liz says its one of either liver or pancreas. She opts for her 50:50.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
"50:50 results": B & D

That's what she thought would happen. She thinks her husband will know it, so she brings him on as her +1. He would feel confident with pancreas because it's part of the endocrine system and the liver filters out poisons. She goes with that answer.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: B (liver)
